Gazprom Ready To Drop Dollar, Settle China Contracts In Yuan Or Rubles

Tyler Durden's picture




 

A little over a month ago, when Russia announced the much anticipated "Holy Grail" energy deal with China, some were disappointed that despite this symbolic agreement meant to break the petrodollar's stranglehold on the rest of the world, neither Russia nor China announced payment terms to be in anything but dollars. In doing so they admitted that while both nations are eager to move away from a US Dollar reserve currency, neither is yet able to provide an alternative. This changed rather dramatically overnight when in a little noticed statement, Gazprom's CFO Andrey Kruglov uttered the magic words (via Bloomberg):

  • GAZPROM READY TO SETTLE CHINA CONTRACTS IN YUAN OR RUBLES: CFO

In other words just as the US may or may not be preparing to export crude - a step which would weaken the dollar's reserve status as traditional US oil trading partners will need to find other import customers who pay in non-USD currencies - the world's two other superpowers are preparing to respond. And once the bilateral trade in Rubles or Renminbi is established, the rest of the energy world will piggyback.

But wait, there's more. Because only now does Gazprom appear to be unveiling all those "tangents" that were expected to hit the tape in May. Among Kruglov's other revelations were that Gazprom is in talks on a Hong Kong listing and is weighing the issuance of Yuan bonds. Gazprom is also considering selling bonds in Singapore dollars, the CFO said at briefing in Moscow. Wait, you mean that by alienating and embargoing Russia from western (USD, EUR-denominated) funding markets, it has pushed the country to turn to its pivoting partner, China and thus further cementing the framework for the next Eurasian strategic alliance?

Unpossible

But wait, there's still more, because it is  not just Gazprom. As the PBOC announced overnight,  PBOC Assistant Governor Jin Qi and Russian central bank Deputy Chairman Dmitry Skobelkin led a meeting held yesterday and today in Shanghai.  The meeting discussed cooperating on project and trade financing using local currencies. The meeting discussed cooperation in bank card, insurance and financial supervision sectors.

In other words, central bankers of China and Russia discussed how to replace the dollar with Rubles and Yuan. From the PBOC:

In retrospect it will be very fitting that the crowning legacy of Obama's disastrous reign, both domestically and certainly internationally, will be to force the world's key ascendent superpowers (we certainly don't envision broke, insolvent Europe among them) to drop the Petrodollar and end the reserve status of the US currency.

As soon as Obama started using the SWIFT system to punish nations, there was no turning back.  Too much international treachery in the Obama admin.  He thinks he is being slick.  He is as slick as anyone else that shits in his dinner before he eats it, just to annoy everyone else with the smell.  He doesn't understand power.

(George) Bush (Sr), Bill Clinton (+Hitlary) were actually the mob bosses of the country for the last 25+ years.

They were working on the behalf of others as well (MIC, Banking, energy business, drug running, etc.) but Bush Sr and Bill Clinton were not merely the puppet figureheads that Jr and Obama are.

The Fed has already said to expect rising interest rates. This seals it, because now all those petrodollars will not be exporting inflation to other nations who don't need to transact with them. The consequences of QE are coming home to roost. Get ready for the next round of Volckerball. Interest rates are going to go much higher in an attempt to keep the QEnie in the bottle, except this time there's unprecedented debt tied to those rates. Counterparty risk is about to matter.

The hardest part is trying to make sense of the fracking alphabet that the Chicoms use. It looks like little drawings of paper houses and weird shit like that. It seems to me that a culture that is so 'well-versed' and 'cultured' for all those millenia would have figured out how to adopt the characters of the fracking ALPHABET (that is obviously 'beneath them', because it was a bunch of Mohammed-loving Arabians that came up with it, along with the mathermatical concept of 'ZERO').

WELL, the Japanese do the same thing, I suppose, and they almost kicked the CONUS' assets once. WTF is it with the hatred between the Chinese and the Japanese, anyway? Those people might as well be SHI'ITES and SUNNIS; trying to kill each other! It's like the inhabitants of JAVA and SUMATRA!

The fiat control of the 'settlement of trade between nations' seems to be the method of control of the populace throughout the world; don't you think?

According to Peter Schiff, the Fed will not be inclined to raise interest rates until inflation is at some unimagineable number. That if interest rates are raised, it will collapse the stock and real estate markets.  He says they will lie to us and say that the inflation is actually a good thing. They probably won't disclose the real interest rates, much like they are doing now.

Food is at a 22% inflation rate just for the first quarter of 2014, yet they are stating current inflation rates around 2%. I believe we will see very high inflation before the Fed raises rates. It's not in THEIR best interests, which, after all, is all that matters. Hear what Schiff recently said about the Fed raising interest rates here: http://www.gramsgold.com/blog/inflation-is-now-only-going-to-get-worse

@THX1178: "Damn these hits are coming hard and fast."

Why do I think of Zappa's "Bobby Brown", when I think of O?  Here are the lyrics, slightly modified by Kirk:

 

Hey there, people, I'm Bobby Brown
They say I'm the cutest goy in town
My car is fast, my teeth is shiny
I tell all the goys they can kiss my Hinie
Here I am at a famous school
I'm dressin sharp n I'm acting cool
I got a cheerleader here wants to help with my paper
Let her do all the work and maybe later I'll 'ape her

Oh God I am the American dream
I do not think Im too extreme
An I'm a handsome sonofabitch
I'm gonna get a good job and be real rich

(Get a good
Get a good
Get a good
Get a good job)

Financial liberation
Came creepin across the nation
I tell you people I was not ready
When I phucked this dyke by the name of Feddie
She made a little speech then,
Aw, she tried to make me say when
She had my balls in a vice, but she left the dick
I guess it's still hooked on, but now it shoots too quick

Oh God I am the American dream
But now I smell like vasall-ene
An I'm a miserable sonofabitch
Am I a boy or a lady...i don't know which

I wonder wonder, wonder, wonder

So I went out n bought me a leisure suit
I jingle my change, but I'm still kinda cute
Got a job doin community promo
And none of the dicks can even tell I'm a homo
Eventually me and a friend
Sorta drifted along into S&M
I can take about an hour on the Tower of Power
As long as I gets a little golden shower

Oh God I am the American dream
With a swindle up my butt till it makes me scream
An I'll do anything to get ahead
I lay awake nights sayin, thank you, Fed!
Oh god, oh god, Im so fantastic!
Thanks to Feddie, Im a financial spastic
And my name is Bobby Brown
Watch me now, I'm goin down,
And my name is Bobby Brown
Watch me now, I'm goin down.

I knew you'd be surprised!

It was and has been always by design.  If the globalists in power could have done it sooner with GW or another president then they would have done it.  Obama is just the latest in the line of wannabe globalist puppets with a deep Marxist ideology perfectly chosen and trained to do the bidding of the globalists who hate America and want to bring us down and all other free people down to our knees.

It's only going to get worse before it ever has a chance to get better.  Keep preparing, keep stacking, keep aware and keep your head on a swivel, because they're hitting us full force with almost everything they've got from every direction as this point just short of an all out war on American soil.

I think they'll hold off using nukes or deadly pandemic-level bio-weapons on us unless we somehow succeed in holding them back from using an economic and societal collapse in order to bring in Martial Law against us to mop up the resistance.  If they can't beat us that way then they'll go full-retard against us and hold nothing back.  It'll all be out in the open then, but they won't care because they will blatantly want to totally destroy all of us at that point at all costs.

Left, Right, what's the difference?

This Left-Right paradigm concept theorizes that the two opposing political parties utilize their tremendous hold over mainstream media to dramatize political distractions and engage in covert warfare and operations, in grand performances of bureaucratic rivalry meant to propagandize and divide the populace. Divisive issues are purposefully fed through the major media outlets to divert attention away from the ruling class's hidden and ulterior (and sometimes global) agendas. By drawing attention to the differences between the two embedded political systems, ideologies, races and classes, the political groups obscure political clarity and divide unity among the masses. The tactic creates confusion and frustration among the population, which enables the ruling class to increase and consolidate their wealth and power through maintaining an illusion of a two-party system of checks and balances that actually works. The theory contends that the fresh interjection of a new political party or group (such as the expanding Libertarian or Green parties) into the political arena, would be the only way to provide a means to break the cyclical paradigm, currently established in the political system.-- wikipedia

• "...nuclear war becomes a mathematical certainty..." ~Helen Caldicott

• "Most in the civilized world are blissfully unaware that we are marching ineluctably towards an increasingly likely pre-emptive nuclear war." ~F. William Engdahl

Why do you think our government builds shelters with limited supplies within them? 

It's because they know you only have to shelter in place until the blasts stop and a couple weeks pass.  Nuclear war is survivable as long as you are not within the immediate blast area and shelter in place for at least a couple weeks (I'd suggest 30 days).  Just be careful of secondary strikes which could be delayed by a couple weeks while submarines move into position.  People seem to suggest nuclear war will not be survived or that it is a waste of time to prepare for it.  You're wrong and should reconsider.  The people on this site are the ones who need to survive after all.

I plan to survive and my children will too.

Azannoth - The Atlanteans had more than Nuclear when they lit it up and the forces of Karma lent a hand :)

I like this summation from your link:

A discourse by Markandeya in the Mahabharata identifies some of the attributes of Kali Yuga. In relation to rulers, it lists:

  • Rulers will become unreasonable: they will levy taxes unfairly.
  • Rulers will no longer see it as their duty to promote spirituality, or to protect their subjects: they will become a danger to the world.
  • People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source.
  • "At the end of Kali-yuga, when there exist no topics on the subject of God, even at the residences of so-called saints and respectable gentlemen of the three higher varnas [guna or temperament] and when nothing is known of the techniques of sacrifice, even by word, at that time the Lord will appear as the supreme chastiser." (Srimad-Bhagavatam (2.7)

With regard to human relationships, Markandeya's discourse says:

  • Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other. Ignorance of dharma will occur.
  • People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
  • Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.
  • Sin will increase exponentially, whilst virtue will fade and cease to flourish.
  • People will take vows and break them soon after.
  • People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
  • Gurus will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings.
  • Brahmans will not be learned or honored, Kshatriyas will not be brave, Vaishyas will not be just in their dealings.

Yeh, that about sums up our situation. Though I think we still have some time left. There seems to be a big push to get the true spiritual teachings out to as many as possible (such as the keys to Alchemy). Once everyone has made their final choice of which Path to take, then they will stop holding back this planet's Karma. TPTB have already made their choice and know they will be scrubbed in the mineral kingdom (hence their total reckless abandon and lack of any compassion).

Only a true space alien would not care about a nuke war on earth, because such a war will end the human race (directly and via mutations), as well as most primates and mammals.  Anyone who believes they can survive and recover from such an event, is badly informed or totally deluded.  Or both.  The lizards and reptiles will have won. 

p.s. Framed in the context of a metaphor that only some will appreciate...

Lucifer will have won too, if you believe that ancient fable as anything but a dissenting/mutinous First Mate of a starship, who had little faith in genetically engineered "humans" and is all to happy to boast:  "By Jesus, I told you so."  ;-)

“…Soon the gods were back in council, for even Enki knew not the exact hiding place of the Ultimate Weapons. To his surprise, not all the other gods were as shocked as he was. Enki spoke strongly against the idea, urging steps to stop Nergal, for the use of the weapons, he pointed out, “the lands would make desolate, the people will make perish.” Nannar and Utu wavered as Enki spoke; but Enlil and Ninurta were for decisive action. And so, with the Council of the Gods in disarray, the decision was left to Anu.”

“When Ninurta finally arrived to the Lower World with word of Anu’s decision, he found out that Nergal had already ordered the priming of “the seven awesome weapons” with their “poisons” – their nuclear warheads. Though the Erra Epic keeps referring to Ninurta by the epithet Ishum (“The Scorcher”), it details in great detail how Ninurta had made clear to Nergal/Erra that the weapons could be used only against specifically approved targets; that before they could be used, the Anunnaki gods at the selected sites and the Igigi gods manning the space platform and the shuttlecraft had to be forewarned; and, last but not least, mankind had to be spared, for “Anu, lord of the gods, on the land had pity.”

One interesting piece of information I noted in the translations was the fact that Ninurta piloted a black space craft notable for sporting two lion heads on it! As the guardian so to speak, this feature is still prominent in Chinese culture as the two lions placed near the entrance of a building is still very much in vogue!

“The verses that follow may well describe the creation of the new southern portion of the Dead Sea, by breaking through its southern shoreline, and the elimination of all marine life therein:

“The great place was never to be seen again…. but the scar made on the face of Earth that awesome day can still be seen – to this very day! It is a vast scar, so vast that its features can be seen only from the skies – revealed only in recent years as satellites began to photograph the Earth. It is a scar for which no scientist has hitherto offered an explanation.”

“….The limestone mountains loom white on the horizon, but where the great central plain adjoins the immense scar in the Sinai, the hue of the plain - black - stands out in sharp contrast to the surrounding whiteness.”

“Black is not a natural hue in the Sinai peninsula, where the whiteness of the limestone and the redness of the sandstone combine to dazzle the eye with hues raging from bright yellow to light gray and dark brown but nowhere the black which comes in nature from basalt stones.”

It was obvious back in 05 or early 06! (I'm not good on dates) However about 2 years before the Presidential Campaign started I turned to my wife and told her the new President of the US would be a black guy called Barack Obama. She asked me how I was so sure?

I said, "It's so obvious because of the media's continued placement of his name in pieces and, articles about the guy here is Oz who's media parrot the US's. That was way before he was even on the radar.

The media machine is conspicuous by it's tactics. I'm not a financial guru but been involved in the music game all my life so, I know how promotion works. Obama was being promoted from oblivion to the White House like a new rock band with a powerful 'someone' favouring him.

Honestly, what followed was spew worthy! The sacchrine calls of support from the R&R 'stars' and Hollywood glitterati was truly sickening with them speaking in front of the US flag.
